“We had such an amazing time playing in our hometown stadium the night before the Super Bowl that when asked we couldn’t say ‘no’ to another chance to be part of a very special weekend,” said Metallica’s Lars Ulrich. A7X frontman M. Shadows commented, “We can’t wait to see our friends in Minneapolis!  Opening the new U.S. Bank Stadium would be an honor all on its own but having the opportunity to play with the mighty Metallica makes this a must see event. We’ve been cooped up in the studio for over a year and can’t think of a better way to bust out than with all of you in Minneapolis.”

“Volbeat are very thankful and beyond thrilled that our friends in Metallica have asked us to join them for the first rock concert at the US Bank Arena alongside Avenged Sevenfold,” said Volbeat’s Michael Poulsen. “We can’t wait to see you all there.”
Both Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat were special guests hand-selected by Metallica at the band’s inaugural Orion Music + More Festival in Atlantic City, NJ in 2013. Both Metallica and Avenged Sevenfold are currently in the studio working on new albums.
